Compared with other headache patients this patient have very cranial muscle tenderness on painful side so study is needed to compare effectiveness of short surged faradic current in patient with cervicogenic headache. Aim: to study the effect of short surged faradic current in patient with cervicogenic headache and improving range of motion and reduce pain in patient with cervicogenic headache. Method: total 25 patients were selected depending on inclusion and exclusion criteria the purpose of study and nature of intervention was properly explained to subject. The subject treated with short search variadic current over trapezius muscle with 30 repetitions three sets. The outcome measures were NUMERICAL PAIN RATING SCALE and GONIOMETER The intervention applied for 5 days per week. assessment were taken pre and post intervention. data analysis was done using SPSS version 21. Result: the study states that pain and range of motion in patients with cervicogenic headache showed improvement in post intervention.
